“I was like, 'hey, what's your name? He said, 'My name is Devonte.' And I asked, 'Do you know what's going on?’ He said, 'a protest?' I asked, 'Do you know why?' He said, ‘yeah.’ And I said, 'Do you think it's good or bad.' And he didn't say anything. He just broke down and cried,” Nguyen continued.

“I just motioned for him to come on over. And he slowly came on over and he was a little trembly,” Sgt. Barnum said. “First thing I said was, ‘Why are you crying? ‘He said he was sad – He was sad about the protest. He was sad about what was going on in the world and all I could do was just sigh.”

Barnum said. “First thing I said was, ‘Why are you crying? ‘He said he was sad – He was sad about the protest. He was sad about what was going on in the world and all I could do was just sigh.”



The two talked about school and vacations and as the conversation came to a natural end, “I just looked down at his sign which he set down on the ground. I'd seen him holding it earlier and I saw it said ‘free hugs’ and I pointed to it and I said, ‘do I get one of those?’” Barnum continued.


A picture is worth a thousand words, but I won't add any words to this, except it spoke volumes.
